Come dance with me, my love, I care not where. On a sandy beach, our steps we shall share, while the sun is high, we waltz, hot and slow, as our thoughts take on a sensual glow, and we dream of night, our bodies laid bare. Take my hand, lead me to a field so fair where we glide with daisies, without a care, as rain patters down, and the sun sinks low, come dance with me… Hold me tightly in the crisp mountain air, as dusk gives way to night, without a prayer. Our bodies sway, ‘neath the moon’s argent glow, and we come together, a liquid flow. With stars in our eyes, one more time, mon cher, Come dance with me… ©️2021 KT Workman
